1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Ideas for covering windows and mirrors on: July 15, 2012 04:19:47 PM
I really need some help thinking of ideas for covering some windows and also mirrors that are on bifold closet doors. We're going to be renting and can't hang curtains but some of the rooms in the back of the house don't have blinds including the master bedroom. DH hates the mirrors on the doors with a passion.

Any ideas would be great. Our move has been taking forever and my brain is about fried.
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Question about zigzag stitch on: December 12, 2009 07:47:10 AM
I use the zigzag stitch for alot of what I do. For some reason, my sewing machine has started making a little fold inside the stitch. I've tried changing the length and width of the stitches in several ways. But no matter how I have the settings, it keeps making the little fold. It wrecked a bag I was making and now my WIPs are piling up since I haven't been able to sew and applique in zigzag. Does anyone know what's causing this and how I can fix it?
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Question about looseish woven fabric on: December 07, 2009 02:17:45 PM
I'm planning to make a skirt using some woven fabric with a kind of loose weave.  It's a suiting fabric and is similiar to kilt fabric.  I don't have a serger.  I'm having trouble figuring out how to have the cut edge not fray all apart.  The already cut edges fray fairly badly.  Any suggestions for making a skirt that won't fray itself to bits?
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Rosehips on: July 14, 2009 09:12:46 AM
I found some good sized rosehips on my bushes this morning.  What can I do with them?
5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / I have a disease swap? on: May 09, 2008 09:27:26 PM
I'm not sure if I'm putting this in the right place.

I wasn't able to do this swap before. I'm not sure if there's one going on now. I didn't see one. But I was wondering if anyone would be willing to do one.  I've never done a swap before so I can't organize. But I'd love to do a swap.  I'm also willing to do a personal swap with someone.
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Louisiana Gardening on: January 31, 2008 04:16:40 PM
I used to have small gardens every year.  But we spent 4 years in a condo in Alaska so my green thumb is rusty.  We have a new house near New Orleans.  We need trees, bushes and flowers for the front.  The back is blank.  Can anyone suggest some veggies, trees, bushes and flowers that grow well around here?  Our dirt is clay/sandy.  This area used to be part of a sod farm.  Also, how do lemon and orange trees do?  Thanks for any suggestions.  I'm kind of nervous after being garden deprived for so long.

8  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Foreign Coins on: February 12, 2007 07:48:45 PM
We live in Alaska and get alot of coins from other countries in our change at the store.  I have a bunch from Canada, 2 or 3 francs, several pence and a euro.  A couple of the pence are copper like pennies.  The euro is gold colored.  All the coins except the copper ones are old and a little beat up.  Any suggestions what I can do with them?
9  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Plastic bags on: February 03, 2007 12:37:44 PM
My mom collected lots of plastic bags for me after I told her about wanting to make knitted bags out of plastic.  But now I can't seem to get the plastic to knit very well.  They're colorful bags from Old Navy, etc.  Any suggestions for other uses for the bags?
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting plastic bags on: February 03, 2007 12:33:48 PM
Does anyone have any tips for knitting plastic bags?  I'm having some problems.  The tips of my needles keep tearing the plastic.  The first row is just determined to be baggy loops.  I've been using size 9 needles.  I have lots of bags that my mom collected for me so I really want the knitting to work.  Thanks.
